lawmakers to sell the embattled health care law to a skeptical public. we'll speak to an architect of obama care, but joining me now is is rand paul. welcome back. >> good morning. >> before we get to obama care, i want to talk to you about your trip to detroit this week where you helped open the first of what are going on several republican outreach centers and inner cities. you also unveiled your plan for economic freedom zones in depressed areas. let's take a look at that plan. you had sent a flat individual and corporate tax rate with 5%. give parents more school choice and education tax credits and loosen visa rules to encourage entrepreneurs to open businesses. while those are all good ideas, you've got to pour more government money into those inner cities if you're going to make a difference. >> well, chris, it hasn't worked. the president pours a trillion dollars into the nation's economy when you divided it out, it was about $400,000 per child. the problem with a government stimulus is you pick the winners and loser rs. with this stimulus i'm talking about, a free market stimulus,
people. they came up, dare i say it, with health care exchanges which president obama put into law. they came up with revenue sharing to help stress state and local government. they're turning their own back on their own history. not just on liberal ideas. >> you know, congressman, a lot of people -- this was brought home when they realize you're talking about children. there was as i said this very arresting article in "the new york times" this morning front page that i read very early this morning. about this 11-year-old named sesani. and it brought to mind when the president was speaking on income inequality. he talked about children in poverty. listen. >> the idea that a child may never be able to escape that poverty because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that views her future as their own. that should offend all of us. and it should compel us to action. we are a better country than this. >> i mean, when we get to the point where children in no fault of their own are living in these situations and it's just discarded, that's troubling about the spiri
'm going to die. >>> health care fixed. obama administration says it's worked out most of the bugs from healthcare.gov but warns more work is needed on the troubled website. >>> and drone drop-off? amazon unveils its new plan to deliver your purchase to your doorstep in under an hour. this is the "cbs morning news" for monday, december 2nd, 2013. good morning. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. well, federal transportation officials have zbruchbt their investigation into the deadly crash of a new york city commuter train. at least four people were kanld 60 others injured. the metro north train was on its way from poughkeepsie to manhattan. it jumped the track as it rounded the curve. they're looking into speed, possible mechanical issues and human error. marlie hall is at the crash site. marlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, anne-marie. federal investigators continue to pore over this crash site this morning trying to determine what led to that deadly train derailment. investigators are trying to determine what caused a commuter train to jump the tracks, killing four
have 48 million people who before obama care had no health insurance at all, what is the republicans' position? what is their solution to the fact that we spend so much more than any other country? their solution is to end medicare as we know it, transform it into a voucher system, give a senior citiz citizcitizen $8,000 and say good luck. make massive cuts in medicaid, and you're even seeing in states around the country now, republican governors whose states could have free medicaid for three years. doesn't cost them a nickel. for all of their low-income people, they are saying no, we don't want it. so what is very clear about this whole situation is the republicans have nothing to say. all they can do is play the anti obama care card, and hope that it fails. and they're going to lose on that. of. >> now, paralleling back to the alabama-auburn football game about never giving up, this was one game in one season. there's going to be another season and another game and the republicans are going to never stop playing it, because they have gone after the entitlement programs, the big th
to sign up for the obama care on health care.gov? log onto the facebook page. tell us your experience with the site. first for more reaction on the developing story we turn to the former clinton adviser, host of wpht in philly. dick morris. how are you? >> hey. good to see you, sean. >> i thought it was to be fix d by december 1. that was their deadline. >> yeah, well, the whole point is the incompetence of the system. you think you are signing up for insurance, but in fact, the insurance company doesn't know anything about it. this is just a website where you're enrolling. the insurance company doesn't have your info, the subsidy you were promised. they don't have the plan you enrolled for. they don't have any of that. that all remains to be built in 30 days. a lot of people are going to need health care on january 2. they will think they're insured and they won't be. >> you're referring to the new york city times and a front page story they had out. in spite of this the problems exist. people think they signed up for the health care. >> yeah. >> they contact the insurance company to
school. vinita nair, cbs news. >>> and now to obama care. the extensive fixes made to the health care website appear to have helped. the government says more people signed up for health insurance on the first two days of this month than in the entire first month of the website's troubled launch. susan mcginnis is in washington. susan, good morning. >> anne-marie, good morning to you. now that the website is working better, the white house is trying hard to get a critical group of americans to sign up for federal health insurance. the obama administration says 29,000 americans enrolled on healthcare.gov in the first two days after it was fixed. that includes dawn aaron from texas. she's a self-employed musician who's buying health insurance for the first time in 20 years. >> i was very surprised at the prices actually. we entered all my tax info and income and stuff, and i was pleasantly surprised. >> reporter: erin is in her 40s and has health issues but for the new law to work, the white house needs millions of healthy young people to sign up to make coverage moreffordable for everyo
group of americans to sign up for federal health insurance. the obama administration says 29,000 americans enrolled on healthcare.gov in the first two days after it was fixed. that includes dawn aaron from texas. she's a self-employed musician who's buying health insurance for the first time in 20 years. >> i was very surprised at the prices actually. we entered all my tax info and income and stuff, and i was pleasantly surprised. >> reporter: erin is in her 40s and has health issues but for the new law to work, the white house needs millions of healthy young people to sign up to make coverage more affordable for everyone else. the president made his pitch during a white house youth summit wednesday. >> i hope you haven't been discouraged by how hard it's been because stuff that's worth it is always hard. >> reporter: a new harvard university poll shows just 20% of americans under age 30 plan to enroll in a health care plan as part of the affordable care act. nearly half say they're unlikely to sign up. >> i would rather do the finer things, obviously. i don't know how much h
. what? >>> president obama's famous promise, if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it, is ringing even more hollow tonight. chief national correspondent jim angle reports on new numbers that indicate just how hard replacing that plan you like may be. >> reporter: one republican said reports obama care had enrolled 29,000 people in two days this week doesn't come close to the pace they need. >> the new improved website will need to enroll close to 100,000 people per day every day this month. that's how many who selected a plan in all of october. >> reporter: others say state and federal exchanges together need to enroll 200,000 a day. that raises the prospect that people whose policies were cancelled might not be able to sign up in time to avoid a gap in coverage, especially since insurance companies are getting bogus information on who signed up. >> it's impossible for everyone that signs up by december 23rd to get coverage and to have that work through the system. >> reporter: but even for those who are able to enroll, about 50% of the plans available are narrow netwo
is off to a slow start. mean while, president obama turned from health care to the economy offering what the white house billed as a major address on american unequality. some are calling it a early preview of the state of the union and the upcoming initiatives to help the middle class. >> while we don't promise equal outcomes we strive to driver equal opportunities. a grandson, a son, a father, as an american, is to make sure that every striving hard working optimistic kid in mark has the same incredible chance this country gave me. over the course of the next year and rest of my presidency, that's where you should expect my administration to focus all of our efforts. >> let's look at that new address with friend of the show josh barrow, politics editor at business insider. welcome, josh. the president gave that speech and talked about a lot of things in the economy and mentioned minimum wage ten times and talked about growth. what about this speech is different since we've heard this president talk about inequality before? >> i don't think it is that different. it's a message we've bee
with the vice president. one issue that came cross with president obama is since the health care roll out is bungled, there is this issue of trust. a new cnn poll when asked if you trust the president, 46% agreed and 53% disagreed. how much of a drag will president obama be on your prospects to reclaim the house and do you want him front and center on stage with candidates in swing districts? >> i don't think he is going to be a drag at all and honestly, we want the focus to focus on the affordable care act and when it works well and works better, our prospects are enhanced and the president's in that is a very strong one. it helps us. you have got two philosophies here. the democratic philosophy that recognizes that the roll out was a disaster. we have to be focussed on getting it right and most americans in the battle ground districts agree. they would rather get it right than repeal it. you have the republican philosophy that is obsessed with ambushing and sabotaging and repealing it. they are talking about going back to the days where a woman with breast cancer is told by her insuranc
system. >> when you look at obama care, you see a government centered health care delivery system. that's not what the american people want. the american people want to be able to pick their own type of health insurance and pick their own doctor and pick their own hospital. >> let me get your response to this. obviously some people interpret the government centered for socialism, which has been some of the criticism. what is your response to the patient is not driving their health care here? >> well, if patients are not driving this, i would like to know why it is we are concerned about people being able to navigate the website and go through plan by plan by plan to select the plans they want. and that's what this is all about. that's not the government telling them this is your plan. we're laying out for the american people in some instances 25 and 30. i've gone through this myself to pick out the plan i want from among the various levels that are available. that is the patient -- or potential patient taking the kind of plan he or she wants to have. what we also know is that when peopl
that improve health care overall for all of us. and if there was something in obama care, we need to know about it. >> now, kingston said it's not responsible to let this thing fall to pieces. and the right wing blog red state posted, quote, jack kingston has surrendered on obama care. has surrendered. they may kick him out the party. he surrendered because he said everyone should work toward improving health care? i mean, how cynical is this? >> it's very cynical, but that is what he's up against. jack kingston is going to be in trouble with the tea party base who wants to see this fail because they want to see this president fail. but there really is hope for so many people. i mean, that story last week in the "washington post" about kentucky. you're talking about republicans, poor republicans, getting health care, reverend al. and i think now that we have these positive stories after, let's be honest, six weeks or so of only horror stories, i think that the public opinion is going to turn and it's going to be very hard to demonize this program and take it away from people. >> but congresswom
effort to re-sell obama care to you, the american public. >> more problems may pop up as they always do when you launch something new. >> the president's health care plan continues to wreak havoc on the american families snow tief >> the administration continues to hide the problems. >> and another problem, stocking up on liquor, guess what? using your money on your dime. plus, the former atf agent who was silenced by the administration is here to expose the truth behind the "fast & furious" scandal. hannity starts right now. and welcome to "hannity." the obama administration and its left wing lackeys are trying to re-launch the disastrous program on the health care law. but unfortunately, the damage is done. we're now learning more about the security risks associated with this website. now listen to what david kennedy, the so-called white hat hacker, talk about the development. >> when they created this website they kind of threw a lot of things together, mixed and matched a bunch of parts putting it on the site to be used by the general public. so when you have that type of website it
has been pretty tough on president obama's rollout of the health care law, and i think the question last night that matthews posed to him, his level of management control and ultimate accountability was the right question, i just don't think obama really answered it. it doesn't matter how many times he met with kathleen sebelius, he didn't meet with her enough, obviously. if he was hands on, he would have learned earlier on that this was an enormous task, that the people assigned to it were not up to. and it was ultimately not prepared to be launched on october 1. there were other indications that before october 1, he says he doesn't know about that. either way, whether you know and you're trying to hide it later or you didn't know, that is a failure of leadership. >> what about this whole thing that his take, charles, that government is not good at certain things and we're looking to consolidate some agencies and yet his administration, when describing the success that they're having now, says that the we believe site is operating at private sector velocity. >> and this is after he
of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking. not anymore. if you still don't like obama care, you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for. not just what you're against. >>> here at 30 rock, we are counting down to tonight's lighting of the famous rockefeller christmas tree. that war on christmas, a lot of hum bug, of course. but as president obama prepares to join in the national tree-lighting on friday, he's got a few other things to attend to. first, including a long list of policy goals that he wants to achieve for the american people. starting, of course, with the affordable care act. the affordable care for all. so just this afternoon, the president kept up his three-week push to promote the affordable care act. this time in a white house youth summit. >> i'm going to need you all to spread the word about how the affordable care act really works. what its benefits are, what its protections are. and most importantly, how people can sign up. i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and -- i do. >> that event highlighting
. and they thought they had a huge story when they thought president obama didn't cover babies with the health insurance. but that wasn't true. that one guy that thought his baby was not covered on his health insurance is because that one activist guy forget to list that baby. he forget one of his kids, simple mistake, apparently. the irs scandal turned out not really being a scandal. trying to turn the benghazi scandal into a tragedy other than a tragedy. and they keep trying to pull stunts to repeal obama care, now that hundreds of thousands of people are getting health insurance that they didn't have before. they really need a new thing. they think they would like to hit him now on iran. according to the hill, quote, house republicans are legislati options that would explicitly rip the obama administration's nuclear deal with iran. quote, a handful of house gop lawmakers tell the hill that the party is debating how best to show disapproval for the iran agreement struck shortly after congress left for the thanksgiving recess. this is the new plan. republicans are going to try to make preside
systems and better energy. >> thanks for that story. >>> new concerns that people signing up on the obama care website may not actually have coverage at all next year. the latest snafu for the troubled health care law. >> we're obviously encouraged by the progress that's been made, but there continues to be a lot of work to do. the work is not about somebody i spoke to today, a reporter that was sort of asking about corners being turned and things and what that means for the president. it's what it means for the people who are trying to get insurance.

45% of retirees pension and health care costs. let's move on to obama care this morning. the reboot continues today. the president will talk about the economic benefits of its health care law at an event in washington, d.c. yesterday president obama defended the affordable care act and suggested if republicans have any better ideas, they should bring them to the table. >> the bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future. we're just getting started with the exchanges. just getting started with the marketplaces. so we're not going to walk away from it. if i have to fight another three years to make sure this law works, then that's what i'll do. i've always said i will work with anybody to implement and approve this law effectively. you got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but, we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> hhs officials also announced a surge of web traffic to healthcare.gov. more than a million people visited the site on monday. former president bill clinton spoke about the law yesterday saying the legacy will not be impacted as long a

, thanksgiving, as always, reminded me of what i'm most grateful for, that poor people still can't get health insurance because the obama care website remains a disaster, even though now the administration's website gurus are bragging that healthcare.gov is working more than 90% of the time. that's good enough for government work. get on the school bus, kids! principal obama says the bridge is 90% complete! >> you'd better get ready, folks. let's hope it goes better the second time around. the white house about to go on a pr offensive surrounding the health care law. >>> also this morning, we know a lot more about what happened before the deadly train derailment in new york, the speed, the engine and now attention seems to be squarely on the driver. >>> and the hardest working newsman at it again, from a north carolina newscast to a north of the border curling match, ron burgundy takes his polyester to canada. this is "way too early." >> look at this. >> there it is. ♪ >> pretty good form out of will ferrell up there on the ice. good balance, good follow-through. good morning, everybody. br
people visited the website alone. there's a huge demand for better health care. and president obama has this challenge for his critics. >> if despite all the millions of people benefitting from it, you still think this law's a bad idea, then you've got to tell us specifically what you'd do differently to cut costs, cover more people, make insurance nmoe secure. >> so what exactly would they do differently? speaker boehner, take it away. >> the american people want to be able to pick their own type of health insurance. they want to be able to pick their own doctor. they want to be able to pick their own hospital. that's what a patient-centered health care system will look like. >> will that be up for vote in 2014? a bill like that? speaker, will that be up for a vote in 2014? >> we'll see. >> we'll see? that's what you'll tell the millions of americans who want affordable health care? we'll see? that's not good enough. >> you got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> this law is working and is here to stay. joining me now are cong
put forward, if they're saying we need to end obama care, they're going to be taking away health insurance from people who have had it for a while. and that itself can be a powerful counterattack. but interestingly enough, it's not just democratic government who's embracing this, it's a handful of republican governors as well. and i think that that is a really revealing sort of point. governor kasich of ohio said the reason we're doing the medicaid expansion is it's a human issue, it's a moral issue that these people need to be covered. and i feel like those voices are going to begin to get more attention as well. >> so, susan, suzy is not wrong on this point, one of the things that republicans are right about when they have angst about the government, that once it is implemented, it is hard to go take it away. so this point that once people have the obama care, talking about repealing it or taking it back becomes a very different issue than having never implemented it. does that mean it's sort of the end of that repeal discussion going forward? >> well, the repeal portion, yes.
, as in the problems with the health care plan have become president obama's katrina. >> but today, the website is now fixed enough that it looks like obama care is really here to stay. the repeal strategy is dead and obama care is out of the icu. according to the administration, the error message rate for the front end of the website is less than 1%. that's down from about 6% last month. the site can now handle 50,000 users at a time, 800,000 per day. keep in mind, at one point, the site could handle only about 1,000 users at a time. >> this website is and will function effectively for the vast majority of users. >> not only is the website functioning better, enrollment is up, too. over 100,000 people have successfully selected plans in the federal exchange in november alone, up from the nearly 27,000 who did so in october. during the first few weeks of november, california's same exchange enrolled more people in private plans than they did for the entire month of october. and in new york, over 33,000 people enrolled through the state's exchange in november, double the just over 16,000 people enrolle
says president obama is going to be doing some public thing every day to highlight good things about health reform, and to get people to sign up for insurance. december 23rd is the next big enrollment deadline for obama care, so the white house is taking on a new effort to fight back against the law's extremely loud critics. you can find of feel the change in tone from the white house on this subject already. they don't sound like they're playing defense on the subject anymore. the president gave a short kickoff speak about it this afternoon in washington, d.c., and i think it was telling this was the biggest applause line in the speech. >> i have always said i would work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you have good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to be sure of that. >> on thursday this week, the venue will be different, the crowd bill probably be a little younger, and the president will be forced off script undoubtedly because president obama on thursday is sitting down for a one-on
. >>> let's turn now to the troubled rollout of obama care and the latest. a big deadline, december 23rd. that is the final day people can sign up for health care coverage and have their coverage begin, if they don't have it now, on january 1st. so you got to do it by the 23rd of this month. but the ongoing problems with the federal website and getting customer information to insurers could mean that some people who think they are going to get covered, may not be. and as it turns out issues with people trying to sign up or extending to certain state exchanges now too. those had been working separate from the federal we can site. now some of those aren't working. >> reporter: not only the federal obama care website that's had its difficulty. rebecca pierce who was in charge of the troubled state-run website resigned friday and some members hypotheticaling she was forced out. they signed up just over 3,000 people by november 23rd and only 700 more one week later. the goal by the 1st of march is 150,000. >> we're for competition and selling insurance across state lines. and above all, we're
and healthcare.gov headaches, president obama is renewing the push for his signature health care law. and this white house knows, they have no time to waste. to promote the law and boost enrollment, the administration will hold an event every single day from now until december 23rd, the deadline to enroll and get insurance for the new year. and it all started this afternoon, with the president himself, who said we are not going back. >> and that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have, is let's go back to the status quo, because they sure haven't presented an alternative. you've got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> no, we're not going to repeal the law. and, in fact, the real ballots may have just begun. >> if i've got to fight another three years to make sure this law works, that's what i'll do. what's important for everybody to remember is, not only that the law has already helped millions of people, but that there are millions more who stand to be helped. and we've got to make sure they know tha
a three-week pr offensive. president obama insisted the sweeping health care law is working and asked supporters to spread the word about benefits of the affordable care act. >> we may never satisfy the laws of opponents. that is fair to say. some are rooting for it to fail. that's not my opinion, by the way, they say it pretty explicitly. some convinced themselves the law has failed regardless of the evidence, but i would advice them to check with the people who are here today. and the people they represent all across the country whose lives have been changed for the better by the affordable care act. >> north korea's leader is believed to have sacked his powerful uncle shown here on the left from the top level government post while two ally haves been publicly executed according to south korean lawmakers briefed by south koreakore korea's intel again see. >>> french prosecutors investigating bob dillon on suspicion of insighting hay friday. a group representing crow asians for comments he made. dillon is accused on likening the crowuation people. >>> one of princess dianna's most me
points memo. new poll from the research center is bad news for president obama across the board on health care policy, 59% of americans disapprove. 37% approve. on the economy, a whopping 65% disapprove. 31% approve. and on immigration policy, 60% disapprove of the president's take, just 32% approve. so you can see the president is standing among americans is at its lowest point ever. the question now becomes can the republican party capitalize in the grand ole party still divided between so-called moderate republicans and committed conservatives. the brawl has been going on for years. and right now the tea party is right in the middle of it. according to real clear politics average, a possible presidential candidates. chris christie a moderate is ahead at 189 percent. conservative rand paul 17%. senator ted cruz 12%. florida senator marco rubio 12%. congressman paul ryan 11%. and jeb bush 10.5%: all these men have a chance to run against hillary clinton in 2016. mrs. clinton is far ahead of any democratic challenger and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad
is there are provisions in obama care that only take effect if the states establish these health insurance exchanges, only if there is an exchange, quote, established by the state. now those provisions include the subsidies available through exchanges and the employer mandate, the penalties imposed on employers if they don't offer what the government considers adequate health insurance. 34 states said they're not going to create exchanges and the federal government is operating exchanges in those states so that means those provisions by law are inoperative in those states. employers in those 34 states are exempt from those taxes. >> right. >> but what the the obama administration is doing, is the exact opposite of what the law says. the exact opposite. they are issuing the subsidies and imposing those taxes in those 34 states and their rationale for doing the opposite of what the law says is that's what congress intended. >> but wait a second. we have a congress, we can fact check this with the people who pass the law. they're still there. they're sitting in their seats in that domed building. where are t
